Jesus called the twelve, began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts.
The simple but demanding ethical standards Jesus gives his disciples challenge them to become one with the people to whom they go. The way they must follow is one of healing and setting people free, not of material gain or self protection. They must depend for food and shelter on the people who welcome them. Becoming a missionary requires networking disciples with one another and others.
